    Does anyone remember the PBS shows that came on before and after Sesame Street in the 1970s?

    One show in particular that came on beforehand in the early 70s (probably 1973) had, at least in my mind, a "dark" appearance to it. Catching the end of the show, all I could make head-or-tail out of was a bunch of men sitting in studio chairs, sort of facing each other. The theme music consisted mostly of an almost-intimidating deep percussion riff. This show either pre-dated "Lilias, Yoga and You" (the show with the fake smiley sun in the background) or came on before it. Any idea what show that might have been?

    Shows after Sesame Street included: Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (came on right after as far back as I remember), The Electric Company, Hodgepodge Lodge, ZOOM, and Villa Alegre. 3-2-1 Contact surfaced in 1980.

    Well if your talking about shows that were shceduled at a certain time wee need to remember all PBS stations are individually owned and operated so they have their own schedules.

    Also MRN debuted in 1968 but TEC ZOOM VA and 321 Contact did come later on.

    I don't recall some of the others you mentioned .
